She has composed stories and poetry (mostly in her head) since her third grade teacher Mrs. Eldridge’s weekly assignment. She started Here and There Japan, a photoblog for children, in 2006 to highlight the things she and her binational, bicultural, and bilingual children saw, did, and used in their daily lives in their multigenerational home.
Her work has been published in children’s and young adult magazines. Somewhere Among, a middle grade novel, was published in 2016. (Source)
Annie writes about her dot, "In my middle grade novel, Somewhere Among, set in Japan, the main character gives a paper doll with a heart with the word "Peace" in Japanese to a bully. She wants him to put peace in his heart. For my dot, I've made two dolls surrounded by words of "peace."
